"I have six years of professional experience as a journalist in Vail, Colorado—both as a freelance writer, and as the Digital Editor for Vail-Beaver Creek Magazine where I oversaw overall digital strategy and vastly increased site traffic."

"During my two years with the magazine, I contributed all digital content to the site, and served in an assistant editor capacity within our small office; I've been a fact-checker, assisted with issue development, pitched ideas for different departments, developed photography assignment lists, and have attended events on behalf of the magazine."
